When I first did “Pabo Bole”, I told myself that someday I would do a Thamizh version of the same. But I had always been a bit apprehensive about doing it because that song was my first attempt with another singer (technically second) and Ron, the singer, did more justice than what I had imagined […]
Here is the latest from the studio.. The title says it all as far as the theme goes.. You can read some notes behind the making of this piece here.
What started off as joke among my family members has now resulted in this fun song. I started imagining how all of us would react if a family member decides to contest in an election. That led to me creating a funny campaign poster. So the next logical thing to do is to have a […]

If you thought that the earlier post was just a funny one, No. I am sorry. ABO Man is here to stay… Here is a quick intro/theme music I put together. More to come soon and the identity of ABO Man will be revealed in the coming weeks.
